Zainab Donli, aka Lady Donli is a 20 year old alternative artiste that fuses the genres of Soul, Alternative Jazz, R&B, Hip-hop and poetry to create her own unique blend of sound. Greatly influenced by her Nigerian routes, she tries to infuse African elements into her sounds. A student of Law in the U.K., She cites Erykah Badu, ASA, Nneka and Andre 3000 as her primary influences. 

In 2016, she held her own first with the release of ‘Free?’, and ended the Year with a new EP out, titled “Wallflower”.

Featuring her trademark story-telling and personal introspection which deal with issues surrounding vulnerability, struggle and romance, “Wallflower” is a compelling work of art. The 6 track EP has features from Odunsi, D-Boi & SET with production by  DOZ, Tay Iwar, MvgicSoul and BillieOnia Beats.

“Wallflower” has been circulating in the alternative indie scene in Nigeria and continues to gain her online recognition. She is the co-founder of the collective SAFI and is part of a new wave of African music currently challenging the norms and breaking boundaries in the music scene.

She recently released a song with Tomi Thomas titled “Ice Cream”. It is a song that reflects its title perfectly. It’s a sweet and sticky jam that is perfect for the summer. Lady Donli sings of a lover that she knows is no good for her, just like well, ice cream.

Donli is already featured on Complex Magazine’s “Bout to Blow” this summer alongside Wizkid’s “Come Closer Ft. Drake” and Katy Perry “Bon Appétit Ft. Migos”. Ice Cream is definitely a summer smash and Lady Donli is poised to leave her mark on 2017.
